    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We're raising funds to help our colleague realise her dream of turning her late son's legacy into a registered charity.

    Dylan Vanhear was a sporty, healthy 11 year old boy until May 2015 when he developed a limp. After numerous trips to the GP it was discovered he had ependymomas on his spinal cord. Cancer. Any parents worst nightmare became a reality.

    After a seven and a half hour operation to partially remove the tumours Dylan was left paraplegic and wheelchair bound.

    During his prolonged stay in hospital Dylan decided he wanted to help Children in a similar situation, as there was so little activity for them. In little more than a year, he achieved the truly incredible feat of raising over £10,000 for Southampton Children's Hospital.

    Finally, after a 308 day stay, when builders were found to adapt the family home in Southampton, he was discharged from hospital in April 2016.

    Sadly Dylan lost his battle in September 2016, a week after his 13th birthday.

    Dylan's mum Michelle & Dylan's family want to set up a charity in his name, continuing 'Dylan's Quest' to help families like theirs, with children who have life threatening illnesses. This could be to provide them with vital financial relief where their lives have been turned upside down, or to make lasting memories with a family day out.

    We need to raise £5,000 to get charitable status for Dylan's Quest. We've already raised over £2,100 with the help and generosity of colleagues, schools, businesses and the local community.

    Your help in getting Dylan's Quest to charitable status would be greatly appreciated.
